..Except for the past two days because I was reading Dostoevsky and Kierkegaard, and I had a job interview last Thursday. I’ve been too lackluster in updating this improvement blog because my drawings have been practices of poses. I’m up to 500 gestures but I still feel like an amateur when it comes to certain body positions, ex if the pose is angled below the waist. I should concentrate more on the torso, and every now and then draw the stretching muscles on the shoulders. I will leave the hands and feet as separate studies instead of spending my 45-30 sec. on detailing them in poses (unless I have extra time).
Also practicing on head likeliness. I’m sketching them according to the advice I was given in Hampton’s head video (proportions and placement).
The finished comic is on the blog and here. I rushed it. There was no incentive to try my best. QQ I forgot how to draw legs.
And I messed up on my lizard. Guess I should scrap it. (The mouth is destroyed beyond repair.)
Gestures and heads tomorrow. For now, I sleep.
I’m still drawing head planes, so I’m practicing. I’m sketching a bit faster though. And I put the lights on the diaroma.
This is all the update for today. I’ve been reading Brothers Karamazov (Pevear translation, so good) so I was preoccupied with something other than my fundementals. I also had time to watch Week 4 of Hampton. It’s delving into torso muscles.
So it turns out the insertion points for the sternocleidomastoid is the sternum and top of the clavicle. Either I misheard Hampton or I’m being ridiculous. Actually the name seems really obvious now.
This is not easy and requires more that one Hampton video. Guhh
I threw proportions out of the window and started looking for other head construction methods. Ex. Reilly, Asaro head, Brigman, Vilppu
